It works but does have issues. Group chats no longer track identifiers properly and it causes various bugs. (I might attempt to debug that someday but I don't really want to end up maintaining the project)

But it's still working great, I'm still using it every day.

For the record, upstream has no maintainer since 2021

Just a note to let you all know that if you've noticed that connections have stopped working to Facebook, and you get a message from bitlbee "Unable to read fixed header", it's most likely due to the upgrade of GnuTLS from 3.5.19 to 3.6.5. The suggested workaround for now is to downgrade back to gnutls-3.5.19 from the arch archive. See also this issue.

hth! arfy

yes, can confirm, just add makedepends=('python3') to the pkgbuild and it works flawlessly.

trying to build this in a clean chroot and it seems that python is needed for some config scripts? anyone else who can confirm that?

Per several discussions I have been privy to, both base-devel and base are not required in the depends array (nor suggested); this is also conveyed several places on the wiki:

This should depend on autoconf and automake as well -- had trouble installing this on a clean server.

Can you update to 1.1.1 please? This fixes facebook group chat problems.

ah, I have running bitlbee local and connect local with irssi and it seems, that its not enough to restart bitlbee :) but it works, now, by restarting both.
